    Blue Marble Goat’s Cheese

    This is a variation of the more commonly known blue-marbled cheeses made with cow and sheep’s milk. Its diminutive size favours the marbling process, whilst the goat’s milk gives it a more intense flavour that blends well with the equally strong flavour of penicillin.
